So today I will share my "perfect" basil pesto:
0,10 oz pine nuts (3 g)
0,17 oz parmesan cheese (5 g)
1/2 clove of garlic
2 cups basil leaves (4dl)
1 tbsp MCT oil (use the oil your diet allows)
1/2 tbsp lemon juice (just to get the pesto more moist)
Lightly toast the pine nuts to get the nice creamy taste rather than a nutty taste when you toast them until they are brown.
When this nice mix of great flavoures are ready, put it in a larger mixing bowl together with the basil and the oil. Use a electric blender to to mince it all toghether or use a food processor and puls it all together.
Look at this nice and fresh green colour and the smell of parmesan and basil is just amazing. My mouth is watering as I writte this.
As I wrote above I use pesto on almost every thing, last night I had pasta and chicken with pesto.
I had some left over and brought it to work the day afer, my co-workers was like hmmmm that smells nice, is it pesto?
